Daniel Johnston draws Captain America for new T-shirt line

Eclectic musician Daniel Johnston is known for more than just his music, but drawing Captain America is something new. Although his work won’t grace Marvel comics anytime soon, it will appear on a line of T-shirts for the boutique company Supreme. Two of those designs feature the Sentinel of Liberty in a very different kind of style than what we’re used to seeing.

And this isn’t the first time Johnston has crossed over into comics. Earlier this year at SXSW, BOOM! Studios released the artist’s Space Ducks: An Infinite Comic Book of Musical Greatness, which has a tie-in album and iOS app. I also heard years ago that he was working with a group to pitch a graphic novel to Vertigo, but it sadly never got past the pitching stage.

These shirts are available in Supreme’s stores in New York, Los Angeles and London as well as online while supplies last.



I haven’t heard of Johnston, but if his music is anything like his drawing, I look forward to hearing what an untalented six-year-old would come up with.

I have a framed print of a Daniel Johnston drawing of Cap in my living room. I’ve had it for at least 6-8 years.
